Uniqlo and Bloomies, Zara, H & M
A pop up store in SOHO we went to all of them
We gave a wave to Liberty then ate at Battery Park
Met up with her cousin for fries at PJ Clark
Heading to see “Wicked” on a very stormy night
Traffic traffic everywhere, did gives us a fright
But rest assured we made it with extra minutes too
We settled in our seats and both gave out a.. whew!
Made it home by twelve … like Cindy at the ball
Into bed and ready for that early morning call
MOMA was exciting with the artist “It’s all true”
The temperature was rising, loved this cool venue
The Guggenheim! A treasure, thanks to Mr. Wright
Then Lincoln Center and its Plaza glowed for us one night
Along the shady Central Park, we strolled Fifth Avenue
We saw Met’s Manus x Machina, so beautiful to view
A get together with a friend she hadn’t seen in years
Oh those hugs and kisses and oh those many tears
But as the famous saying goes, “All good things must end!”
She left for home, but this I know – she’ll be back again!
Thanks to my beautiful niece (soon to be 17) for showing me a wonderful time in 4 short days!
Important to know: Go with the flow- my niece knew what she wanted to do. I just hit the highlights in my little poem… We spent more time at The Met to see on the roof the replica of the house from Psycho – and The Temple of Dendur. All the museums were packed because it was that notorious “heat dome’ weekend. We saved for a cooler time to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and do the Empire State Bldg among other sites.
I found out when she was leaving that the next time she’s here – she wants to go to several parks – and sketch. Sounds good to me…. blankets, some food, love it!
Good to know: Manus x Machina at the Met. It’s part of the Costume Institute at the Museum and the clothing is beautiful – well worth going to before it closes September 5.
